Event Date: 

Sunday, July 9, 2017 (All day) to Wednesday, July 12, 2017 (All day)

About the Event: 

On the behalf of the National Neurotrauma Society, it is with great enthusiasm that I invite you to attend the 35th Annual National Neurotrauma Symposium, Neurotrauma 2017, to be held at the Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, in Snowbird, UT on July 9-12th, 2017. Since its inception, this symposium has brought together scientists, clinicians, and health-care providers who are dedicated to the study of neurotrauma and to translating knowledge generated by research into improved patient care. Join your colleagues and initiate new collaborations at the premier forum for information related to traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury in the setting of a gorgeous mountain resort. The theme for Neurotrauma 2017 is “Elevating Discovery...Elevating Care.”

As in previous years, I am honored to announce that Neurotrauma 2017 will be co-hosted by the National Neurotrauma Society and the AANS/CNS Joint Section on Neurotrauma and Critical Care.

This combination of expertise allows for presentations that integrate state-of-the-art clinical, translational, and basic science data. Elevate your knowledge and accelerate translation of new ideas by attending sessions from both societies.

The Scientific Program Committee has put together an exciting symposium comprised of plenary and break-out sessions in which the leading experts will share their up-to-date thoughts, research, and findings on neurotrauma. A central focus of Neurotrauma 2017 will be the highly interactive mid-day poster sessions which will stimulate scholarly discussions on the mechanisms, assessments, and treatment of injury to the nervous system. Innovative workshops will be cover pertinent topics such as writing effective publications and grants, state-of-the-art patient care, conducting rigorous research, improving scientific communication, and use of cutting-edge technologies to accelerate discovery at both the bench and the bedside. CME credits will be provided for each day of the meeting.

Several unique opportunities for collaboration and mentoring are planned including: a welcome reception at The Summit, WiNTR lunch sessions, alpine activities at the Monday Night Alpine Dinner & Networking Event, S’More Collaboration Campfire and the gala dinner celebrating the 35th Anniversary of the National Neurotrauma Symposium: “A Emerald Evening Celebrating the Past, Present, and Future of Neurotrauma.”
